Azura at Quilalea


An idyllic eco-boutique retreat

Mimicing the Azura resort on Benguerra Island, the Azura at Quilalea draws its style inspiration from pure African elegance. Situated on a private paradise which is encircled by an idyllic marine sanctuary, Azura at Quilalea offers an exclusivity that is rarely found. This Eco-Boutique Retreat is a Mozambique island gem that lets guests effortlessly escape the stresses of their daily lives.

Azura at Quilalea is located in the very southern part of the Quirimbas Archipelago, which forms a fully protected marine sanctuary. Conscious of this pristine natural environment and the need to preserve it, Azura at Quilalea has embarked on a unique energy saving project, whereby solar power, wind generation, rainwater harvesting, and eco-friendly rechargeable crystal batteries are used in combination with normal generators and desalination to provide the island’s power and water. The aim is for all basic functions to run without the need to switch on generators for lengthy periods, and also to switch generators off completely at night to ensure maximum tranquility for our guests.

The nine seafront villas have undergone a full make-over, ensuring that each villa is more spacious without compromising on the pre-existing charm. Villas are built from natural coral stone and makuti thatch, with natural finishings, indoor/outdoor showers, private decks stretching out to the beach, daybeds and sun-loungers for relaxing. Should you wish, you can even book the whole island to enjoy it in its entirety and in your own privacy. Stroll on the gleaming white beach, bask on a sunlounger, recline in your sala, or cool off in the outdoor shower.
